The old house at 185 Wareham Road has been demolished to make way for the town’s first Habitat for Humanity home, a project planned by the organization’s Buzzards Bay Area chapter. The foundation will be poured when the ground thaws, and construction on the 1,100-square-foot house should get underway in the spring. The three-bedroom home will be powered in part by green energy, with solar panels on the roof. The land purchase was a partnership, with the town pitching in $125,000 and Habitat providing $10,000, according to Christine Lacourse, executive director for the Buzzards Bay Habitat chapter. About 20,000 square feet will be used for the home, and the town will retain use of the rest for open space. Town Meeting voters in November also approved a $30,000 contribution toward home construction.
